About the Tour

We begin the trip on the ferry to Bremerton, WA. This gives us a great view of downtown Seattle from the water. Once in Bremerton, we head to a large oyster bed which will be our viewing location for the photo tour.

The oyster beds attract bald eagles, great blue heron, seagulls and other birds because as the tide recedes, small fish get trapped in the shallow beds. 

First on the scene are the heron and gulls. The tide slowly goes out, and we see our first bald eagles swooping in to look for easy prey. Eventually, as many as 20 eagles may join the action.

We will photograph eagles in flight, snapping up fish, and often eagle fights as they compete for food.

We designed the trip to appeal to beginners and intermediate photographers looking to learn about wildlife and bird photography. Your guide will help you with exposure and focus tips to capture bald eagles in flight.

With a wing span that can reach 7' across, they soar against the evergreen trees and oyster birds making for a wildlife photographer's dream.

When you book, please indicate if you would like to rent any equipment. Your guide will pickup and drop off your chosen equipment. To get the most out of the trip, we recommend renting the best telephoto lens you can afford for your camera, like the Nikon or Canon 500mm lenses.

All rental equipment is provided by Glazer's Camera Rentals in Seattle. Explore their rental prices to customize your gear for the ultimate bald eagle photography experience.
